The sampling design described in this paper is one which was devised for a survey on Canning and Gardening in Iowa. This survey was initiated by the State Nutrition Council and M. L. Wilson, Director of Extension, United States Department of Agriculture. The sample was designed by the Statistical Laboratory and the investigation conducted by the Extension Service, Iowa State College. The purpose of the survey was to make estimates of 1. Number of quarts of food canned, frozen, and stored by Iowa families; 2. Number and size of 1943 gardens and plans for 1944; 3. The amount of food spoiled and possible causes of spoilage; 4. The amount of canning equipment needed for 1944.
